Think about it, where does your heart long to go?

When I was planning my journey, I had images in my mind that I wanted to see "for real". 

There is nothing better than taking a pause and beholding the wonder that nature and man have created. There is beauty to behold in every step near and far. But it is these far flung places that, I believe, make us present. We are more awake to our surroundings when everything is new. More appreciative of what is before us, because it is the first and maybe only time we will enjoy this view.

My heart is full of these "for real" images. I made a plan, I worked it out and I got to experience parts of the world I had only read about. 

There were challenges along the way, but none so great to make me want the journey to end. If the heart wants to go, then it is only the first step the brain needs to make to get your own journey started. From there, the world awaits to share with you her most beautiful self.

...making a decision was only the beginning of things. When someone makes a decision, he is really diving into a strong current that will carry him to places he has never dreamed of when he first made the decision.
